    Nensi Pelosi svodit menya s uma svoyey noyushchey.
    Nancy Pelosi is driving me nuts with her nagging.
    Nancy Pelosi drives me crazy with her aching.

    Митч Макконнелл не очень помогает.

    Mitch McConnell isn't being very helpful.
    Mitch McConnell doesn't help much.

    Я терпеть не могу быть отодвинутым на задний план этой девушкой из Бронкса - AОК.
    YA terpet' ne mogu byt' otodvinutym na zadniy plan etoy devushkoy iz Bronksa - AOK.
    I hate being upstaged by that girl from the Bronx - AOC.
    I hate being pushed to the back of this girl from the Bronx - AOC.

    Google Translate, unedited, except for "AOC" and its Russian version. I translated each phrase English -> Russian -> English.

    Yes, autotranslators can make weird translations.

    Here are some revised ones.

    Нэнси Пелоси постоянно придирается ко мне.
    Nensi Pelosi postoyanno pridirayetsya ko mne.
    Nancy Pelosi nags me all the time.
    Nancy Pelosi is constantly finding fault with me.

    Мне нужны спасительные деньги для моих неудачных предприятий.
    Mne nuzhny spasitel'nyye den'gi dlya moikh neudachnykh predpriyatiy.
    I need bailout money for my failing businesses.
    I need saving money for my failed ventures.


    The back-translations often look plainer than the originals.

    That's better. Did you ask some human to translate?
    Russian is a synthetic language, word type (noun, verb, proverb, etc) is determined by the word form.
    English is an analytic language - word place in the sentence determines everything. So word "nagging" could mean different things depending on the place. In that particular case it's syntactically a noun and should be translated into different form "Нытье" ("Nyt'ye")
    so correct translation is "Нэнси Пелоси сводит меня с ума своим нытьём"
    google-translated back to english is "Nancy Pelosi drives me crazy with her whining"
    Мне нужны спасительные деньги для моих неудачных предприятий.
    Mne nuzhny spasitel'nyye den'gi dlya moikh neudachnykh predpriyatiy.
    I need bailout money for my failing businesses.
    I need saving money for my failed ventures.
    That conveys the meaning but no native russian speaking human would say that.
    Nobody says "спасительные деньги" (bailout money) in russian.
    They say "деньги для спасения" literally "money for bailout"

    The back-translations often look plainer than the originals.
    I recently tried google translate and was amazed how good it was. Apparently in 2016 they switched from so-called statistical machine translation to neural net machine translation. Most of the time it's hard to notice that it was not human. But one funny thing I noticed is when it translates english word into russian word but russian word have additional meaning it tries to apply that meaning back to english version of the sentence and if this new meaning (which english does not have at all) fits then all hell breaks loose.
    For example there was an article about woman named Heather and her medical problems with kidneys. Heather is a name of the plant and the word kidney has additional meaning in russian - "bud" (plant bud). So google transtate linked russian word "bud" back to english word Heather and started talking about tree's bud It was funny considering that earlier in the text it knew that Heather was a woman, not a plant, but since NMT (Neural Machine Translation) operates on sentence level it did not remember that.

    I understand it's a side effect of the deep NN they use but they should not merge meanings of words in different languages into one.
